The Connaught Review

A huge favorite of the "we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else" monied set since its opening in 1917, the Connaught has many dazzlingly modern compliments to its famously historic delights. These include up-to-date rooms done in smooth taupes and creams and—the ultimate sign of devil-may-care swagger—a swanky bar with patinum-plated walls. Chef Hélène Darroze runs the titual, Michelin-starred restaurant; alternatively, the afternoon tea (around £35) is a great splurge. Incidentally, as ever with blue bloods, the clue is in the name–this elegant hotel was named in honor of Queen Victoria's son, the Duke of Connaught.

    I'm in Love with the Connaught!

    What a wonderful place to stay in London! I arrived early morning in London and went to the Connaught to check my things. Of course room wasn't ready (it was 7:30 AM)so the lovely staff offered me both tea and an umbrella before setting off on my day of meetings.

    I returned in the evening to enjoy a cocktail at the beautiful bar which had been decorated for Christmas (along with the hotel). And I was absolutely delighted with my room which was both gorgeous and comfortable.

    My only regret was that I had but one night here. However, I do plan to return with my family on our next trip to London. The location cannot be beat.
